Landsat: Unlocking Earth’s Secrets

Landsat- Unlocking Earth’s Secrets.jpg

In operation since 1972, Landsat is the longest running program for acquiring satellite imagery of our Earth.

Landsat sees the earth in a unique way. It takes images of every location in the world to reveal earth’s secrets, from volcanic activity to urban sprawl.

Landsat sees things on the electromagnetic spectrum, including what’s invisible to the human eye.

Landsat takes images of every location on earth once every 16 days, so we can see how places change over time.

Landsat’s work is epic in scale. In 43 years, it has amassed over a petabyte of data, with more than 4 million scenes and counting.
